Walt was a vital asset in the loan process. I was purchasing a home for the first time and was scared and didn’t know what all to expect and what everything meant. Walt was there every single step of the way explaining and helping me out any question I had he had an answer and would fully explain it for me so I could understand it. I couldn’t always step away at work so he worked around my time and was there during evening to answer and talk things through and weekends to he was truly helpful. Anytime he said something was happening it did. He said no question is a stupid question and he truly meant it. I can’t thank him enough for the wonderful help and being there through the entire process and even helping afterwards he is still there to make sure that we have everything on track. He made me comfortable with the process and not so nervous. I highly recommend him and his team they will take care of you and your family fully. Thank you Walt for all of your help and assistance and care you took my family and I thank you!!!

If yes, call Walter Dagley. You will not find a more informed partner in the process than Walter and his team. Walter recently helped me secure a loan under a lesser-known Fannie Mae program that has been around for a while although few lenders know about it. The Family Opportunity Mortgage allows for the purchase of a second home for an elderly parent within 50 miles of a primary residence without paying investment property rates. The loan was more complicated and this crack team pulled it together in 30-days. That is a feat for a conventional loan, which this one was not. Walter was patient, answering all my questions (there were many), and if he didn’t have the answer, he said I’ll find out and he did. It is so refreshing to work with a professional that doesn’t try to talk their way through a question they don’t have a ready answer for. My experience with Walter was the best lending experience that I’ve ever had. At the time I was working with 3 different lenders to get the best package and Walter was the winning bid. He stayed in touch with me all through the process and even after closing, he still answers my phone calls! One other lender knew of the program but offered it at higher rates than Walter. Walter genuinely knows and is enthusiastic about the work he does. This is an unqualified endorsement of Mr. Dagley and the service he provides.

Walt spent a great deal of time and energy making sure we understood the process as first time home owners. He went out of his way to make sure he was available to answer any questions we had.

Walt and Rachel at Certainty went beyond the call of duty and expedited my process so that everything was completed in 3 weeks. The buyer of my home was a cash sale with a specific move date. And the seller of my current home was quite difficult! But Walt an Rachel pulled the mortgage off and kept me apprised of the process the whole way! I totally understood the entire process and was able to even buy down my interest rate thanks to their diligence! Great team! Will use them again, if the need ever arises and recommend them highly!

My husband and I just purchased our first home! Our financial advisor recommended Walt Dagley as a great loan officer, and we are so glad we worked with him. Walt took two clueless people and patiently walked us through the process of getting our first home loan. He was conscientious about checking in with us weekly to give us updates on our progress, he kept in touch with our realtor to make sure everyone was on the same page, he answered our many, many questions quickly and efficiently, and he helped us feel at ease every step of the way. Honestly, we went into this process with a lot of fear and unknowns, and Walt took the time and care to make us feel confident in our decisions. He was always a phone call, email, or text message away. We are so thankful that we found Walt to help us with our home loan, and we cannot recommend him highly enough.

Lender was motivated and very attentive every step of the process. Walt and Rachel were very professional and personable. They kept me on task as the amount of required documents increased which I appreciated.

We are a retired military couple. As such, we've purchased many homes over the course of our lives. Without a doubt, Walt and his team provided THE BEST AND MOST PROFESSIONAL SERVICE....ever! In fact, we had begun processing our mortgage application with another lender...but changed to Walt and his team because of prompt, professional service (and a better interest rate)! Walt's personal, professional stewardship of our loan application throughout the entire process more than justified our change from the other lender to Certainty. We cannot recommend Walt and his team at Certainty highly enough.

Walt did a great job guiding me through the finance process. The tools he uses are easy to access on computer and even my phone, so approvals and stage-changes were a snap.

We were not easy clients for Walt and our realtor. We literally found the perfect home for us the day before flying back across country from South Carolina to California. With no pre-approval in place, and despite the long distance and three hour time difference, our loan closed in 30 days with Walt's oversight and Brand Mortgage's professional handling of the process. Great communication was key. Walt checked in regularly, often very late east coast time. From start to finish, our loan application couldn't have gone better!

Walt was very helpful as this was my first home buying experience. Whenever I had a question, Mr. Dagley always had and answer or found out in a timely manner. I once called him while he was having dinner, he finished his meal and called me back after a few minutes. I would work with Walt again when the time comes to upgrade to a another home.
